Have been awake since about 2:00am (ish) with those wonderful “Jet Lag blues”. So Lewis decided to get up and go and use the hotel’s public computer to be greeted by the night receptionist with the most annoying question: “Jet Lag?” Should have answered “No I just normally get up at this time of the day, but was too knackered and could just about answer yes… ”
7:00am arrived and all packed, dressed and video blog done and the car is packed and ready to go…. So where to? Well we decide to head to Revelstoke, a railway town and jesus are their goods trains long!!! Must be talking of 1 mile in length and they travel very slowly that’s for sure.
Along the journey we begin to enter the actually Canadian Rockies and National Parks. All we keep saying to each other is “Oh wow, look at this” and “Oh my god look at that…”
Having been on the road for a good few hours, we decide to stop in Sorrento which is on a tiny part of the massive Shuswap Lake. We found a nice little diner place where breakfast was served and oh jesus what a feast!!! bizarrely the cook’s family originated from the UK and her father was in fact stationed at Biggin Hill !!! There is one thing that you realise when you travel nowadays and that is just how small a place this planet has become, especially with the use of modern technology… :0)
Feeling rather full from our breakfast, we got back to the vehicle and saw the only Grizzly bear in town….. Sadly he was an 8ft wooden carving!!!
Onwards to Revelstoke and when we arrived there it was a little bit too industrial for our liking so we stopped for coffee and ice cream and to make a new plan of where we were going and where we were going to stop and spend the night. We managed to book a log cabin in Golden, British Columbia and when we eventually got there we found this place to be absolutely stunning… Cedar Restaurant and Cabins is certainly well worth stopping at when you have a log burning stove, a large sleigh bed and your very own hot tub out on the porch!!!! Mmmmmm luxury indeed.
So after getting settled in for the night we needed to eat and so made our way into Golden where we found a bar that served food so stopped and ate. After that it was back to the cabin and off to bed for another exciting day….
